    "My child has been attending Friends Nursery School for the last year. We were sold on the school because we wanted a very play based, individualized curriculum for our child. In addition, we loved the idea of a program that honors all beliefs and instills a love of community. Thus far, we have been beyond pleased with our child's experience at CFS/FNS. He is excited to go to school every day, he loves his friends and teachers, we have felt accepted by the other parents and staff since we walked through the door...it just feels like family."

    "My daughter is currently in her third year of preschool at Connecticut Friends School, and she absolutely loves it. The teachers here are the BEST and give each child exactly what they need in terms of attention, care, and education. What I love most about CFS is how they observe the child-led method of exploration and learning, and react and teach based on what the kids are interested in. They foster play and individuality and adventure, and are pretty much the opposite of the Common Core curriculum (if that's important to you)."

    "Education is not preparation for life; Education is life itself. This quote sums up so many of the positive feelings I have for our school, Connecticut Friends. My two children attend CFS and are thriving there, academically, emotionally and creatively. I really appreciate the open communication between the teaching staff, administration and parents. There is always an open door to discuss the goings on of the classroom, playground and synthesis of what is being taught to my kids. And, what is being taught is nothing short of excellent. This school is healthy, vibrant progressive education in action. If you are looking for academic excellence executed in a playful way, I highly recommend that you schedule a visit to CFS and see for yourself!"

    "Connecticut Friends School (CFS) has a nurturing environment where the students feel safe to take risks in their learning. The student-teacher ratio is small so the students have many opportunities to work directly with their teachers. The learning is very hands-on so the students have a very active learning experience instead of a passive education. Most importantly, CFS instills respect, kindness and caring in their students by exhibiting these qualities to their students while expecting the students to treat each other and their teachers with that same respect, kindness and caring. I was very impressed at conference time. My daughter, the teacher, my husband and I attended a conference that my daughter led. She knew exactly what her strengths and weaknesses were and had a goal and plan to work on what was weak. She showed us her work throughout the trimester and her plan to work on her goals. The school believes in the children and their ability to know themselves; it respects their individuality and nurtures the whole child."

    "Our family came to CFS after spending three years in another private school in the area. We now have two children enrolled at CFS (one in the Nursery School, the other in Maples). CFS nurtured our older child, focusing at the preschool level on social and emotional development and Kindergarten readiness. Now in Kindergarten, that child is absolutely thriving under the gentle, wise and patient guidance of the Maples teachers. After 2 years at CFS, our child who was once extremely unhappy and lacked self-confidence is now joyful about learning and excited to come to school. Our younger child, now in the second year of Nursery School, is surrounded by loving and supportive staff, permitted the freedom to play and discover, and encouraged to practice kindness and respect. We have a profound respect for CFS, for its philosophy and teaching in a peaceful and thoughtful environment. CFS has become a home for our family and our children."
